Sex in the Wild: Dolphins - Preview
Joy and Mark investigate the reproductive secrets of marine mammals to learn how animals that breathe air manage to mate, give birth and raise their young underwater. Joy travels to New Zealand to uncover the mating strategy of dusky dolphins. While she reveals the adaptations marine mammals have evolved to mate in the ocean, Mark travels to Mexico to find out how whales find mates in the ocean.
In this series, comparative anatomist Professor Joy Reidenberg and veterinarian Mark Evans explore the life and death struggles of earth's greatest species as they attempt to reproduce in some of the most hostile environments on earth. From the very first mating calls -- through some fabulously flirtatious foreplay -- to heart stopping births where the lives of mother and baby hang in the balance, the series examines the wonderful, weird and sometimes wacky world of animal reproduction.
